Emergency Alert System
Citizens Emergency Alert System
The City of Martinsville and Henry County, in partnership with Twenty First Century Communications, Inc., have instituted a new system that will send telephone notifications to residents and businesses within the Martinsville-Henry County area, when impacted by, or in danger of being impacted by, an emergency or disaster.
This system, called the Martinsville-Henry County Citizen's Alerting System, will be used by emergency response personnel to notify homes and businesses at risk, with information on the event and/or actions to take.
The system utilizes the area's 9-1-1 database and is able to contact land-line telephones whether listed or unlisted. It is also TTY/TDD capable.
Because the system uses the 9-1-1 database, only land-line numbers are in the system. If you have a Voice over IP (VoIP) or cellular telephone and would like to be notified over that device, or if you would like an email notification, you must register those telephone numbers and/or email address for use by the system.
